Behavioral Threat Assessment

CIS consultants assist clients in assessing and managing potential threat situations.

Behavioral Threat Assessment

Over the past twenty years, CIS has assisted a diverse range of clients in assessing and managing potential behavioral threat situations including workplace violence, stalking, and student threats.

Most acts of predatory violence (e.g., mass homicide, targeted attacks against persons, etc.) are preceded by a process of ideation, planning, and preparation. Correspondingly, individuals accelerating on the pathway to targeted violence often exhibit personality characteristics and behaviors which can serve as a warning. In these situations, conducting a behavioral threat assessment can provide critical opportunity for intervention or protective action.

Since 1992, CIS has provided expert assistance to a diverse range of organizations and private individuals in assessing potential threat situations and navigating complex and sensitive decisions essential to managing risk. Our clients include schools and universities, corporations, non-profit and religious organizations, public figures, and victims of stalking behavior and domestic violence.

To ensure that our assessments are both functionally-effective and legally-defensible, CIS investigates and assesses threats in accordance with best practices as promoted by the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP), U.S. Secret Service, and National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime. When applicable, threat assessments are also supported by the use of evidence-based structured professional judgement instruments, such as the Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk 21 (WAVR-21).
